Is Clapham Junction still SW11?

1 min read

While there is an ongoing battle to SW11tch back to Battersea, residents in Clapham Junction area have recently claimed for some results with Asda changing its name from Asda Clapham to Asda Clapham Junction-Battersea, and the new Travelodge Hotel renamed London-Claphma Junction.
However it seems that now even Wandsworth Council is confused as they started to label the area as in North Tooting, SW17. See the photo below:
Mossbury Road, right beside Clapham Junction station is now in SW17
Is there something that we haven’t been told? 😉
One of Shaftesbury Councillor made aware of the situation replied by email: “I’ll see if I can get it sorted.” Er, does that mean that he is not sure, and that it might be a permanent move ?

Clapham Junction Insider (formerly known as the CJAG website) has been publishing local news for over 14 years and remains committed to providing information about the local community and engaging in public interest journalism.

Our goal is to feature a wide range of community campaigns and initiatives, local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, and provide assistance to residents.

We have always been dedicated to these endeavours and have no intention of changing. In fact, we would like to expand our efforts further.

Until recently, all the stories, analyses, and reports published have been made possible with the invaluable help of many volunteers. However, it requires a significant amount of time and effort, and we are frustrated that we cannot do more. There are numerous topics we would like to cover, but we require financial resources to provide regular information.

Therefore, we kindly ask our readers to consider offering financial support to sustain these efforts. Any contributions made will help support community and public interest news, as well as the expansion of our coverage in this area.

  1. I also see that the new fitness centre next to the Travel Lodge has a big banner proclaiming its address as — Clapham Hill! That should keep everybody confused.
